Property description

Welcome to Villa Monte Poni.
Located between the two renowned renaissance cities of Florence and Siena, Monte Poni resides in the heart of the wine region of Chianti Classico. This first class guest villa has the location, views and ambiance you are seeking for a memorable visit to Tuscany.
This property may be divided into 3 separate units and is also available for long term rentals.

Originally part of the Vitigliano wine estate owned by renaissance navigator Giovanni da Verazzano, Villa Monte Poni has been charmingly restored to its former glory by its American owner who has retained the colonial essence of the past while creatively adding colorful accents and a warm, welcoming atmosphere.

The two neighboring towns of Greve and Panzano have recently become culinary landmarks on the map of 'where to go' in Tuscany by food and wine appassionatos worldwide. Panzano has recently been featured on the food show 'No Reservations' hosted by Anthony Bourdain and featured Panzano's own world renowned butcher Dario Cecchini.
Here along the famous wine road SS222, you may spend time visiting wineries, dining on Tuscan cuisine, horseback riding, hiking, biking, or playing golf at world class golf courses.

Explore the magical 'Classico' countryside, then come home to Monte Poni and take in the ambiance while enjoying a glass of wine as the sun sets over the Tuscan hills. Monte Poni is surrounded by vineyards, olive groves, pastures and woodlands. Relax and experience the pleasures and breathtaking vistas of romantic 'Chiantishire,' and top it off with a refreshing swim in our superb naturally landscaped swimming pool.

Monte Poni is ideal for travelers who wish to be within an easy drive of major cities, yet far enough away from the hustle and bustle to enjoy the quiet of the countryside. And, it's also conveniently located for day trips to famous Tuscan destinations such as San Gimignano, Lucca, Arezzo, Volterra, and Pisa.

All guest quarters boast fabulous views from every window, a truly wonderful attribute of Monte Poni! Perfect for couples, groups of friends or family reunions, the house is divided into three separate units which surround a charming terracotta and stone courtyard. They can be rented separately or together.
Each unit has its own private entrance and outdoor sitting and dining area, allowing for group fun or for privacy when desired. All have fully equipped, self serving kitchens, plus, we can also arrange for delicious Tuscan specialties to be prepared for you in your kitchen.

Monte Poni has accommodations for groups of 2 to 15 people. Please feel free to discuss your individual requirements with our friendly hosts.

LA TORRE, the largest apartment is on three levels with the main entrance off of the courtyard. On the first floor is a large, live-in, country style, fully equipped kitchen with a fireplace. On the same level is a full bathroom and large double bedroom with a pullout sofa for extra sleeping accommodations. Down a few stairs is a small sitting room and a twin bedroom. Upstairs is a spacious double bedroom with private full bathroom and walk-in closet. La Torre sleeps six to eight.

ALBA is entered by a flight of stairs off of the courtyard. One enters into a spacious, fully-equipped, country-style kitchen/dining area that is handsomely decorated and has a large fireplace at one end. Down two steps is a long living room with pull out sofa for extra sleeping accommodations. There is a large, full bathroom at one end and there is a double master bedroom and a twin bedroom on the same level. Alba sleeps four to six.

l'APARTAMENTINO, the smallest apartment has its own private entrance and parking on the other side of the building. It features a cozy sleeping alcove with a double bed, a sitting room with a single sofabed and galley kitchen for making breakfast and small meals. A large full bathroom is up on another level.
